There's no incentive to do things for "free" anymore

That is a very important thought behind Open Source. A lot of people got together to make everything from operating systems (linux and others) to software that can be used in offices (Open Office).

Some people manage to make profits from Open Source but you can still get it free despite a lot of work by Fat Cats and their friends.
